    Philosophical Foundations of the Social Sciences: Analyzing Controversies in Social Research.Harold Kincaid - 1995 - Cambridge University Press.
    This 1996 book defends the prospects for a science of society. It argues that behind the diverse methods of the natural sciences lies a common core of scientific rationality that the social sciences can and sometimes do achieve. It also argues that good social science must be in part about large-scale social structures and processes and thus that methodological individualism is misguided. These theses are supported by a detailed discussion of actual social research, (...)

    The Role of the Humanities and Social Sciences in Nanotechnology Research and Development.Mette Ebbesen - 2008 - NanoEthics 2 (3):333-333.
    The experience with genetically modified foods has been prominent in motivating science, industry and regulatory bodies to address the social and ethical dimensions of nanotechnology. The overall objective is to gain the general public’s acceptance of nanotechnology in order not to provoke a consumer boycott as it happened with genetically modified foods. It is stated implicitly in reports on nanotechnology research and development that this acceptance depends on the public’s confidence in the technology and that the confidence is (...)

    The Rural Social Sciences: An Overview of Research Institutions, Tools, and Knowledge for Addressing Problems and Issues. [REVIEW]Frederick H. Buttel - 1987 - Agriculture and Human Values 4 (1):42-65.
    This paper seeks to provide a broad overview of the historical, contemporary, and future roles of the rural social sciences. This overview is preceded by a brief elaboration of a model of the social, political, and economic structure of experiment station research organizations which is helpful in identifying the particular types of agricultural and social sciences research that have tended to be conducted in land-grant institutions. Agricultural economics and rural sociology are given particular (...)

    Challenges for Research Ethics and Moral Knowledge Construction in the Applied Social Sciences.Stephen L. Payne - 2000 - Journal of Business Ethics 26 (4):307 - 318.
    Certain critical accounts of conventional research practices in business and the social sciences are explored in this essay. These accounts derive from alternative social paradigms and their underlying assumptions about appropriate social inquiry and knowledge construction. Among these alternative social paradigms, metatheories, mindscapes, or worldviews are social constructionist, critical, feminist, and postmodern or poststructural thinking. Individuals with these assumptions and values for knowledge construction are increasingly challenging conventional scholarship in what has been referred (...)

    Research Ethics in Social Sciences: The Severina's Story Documentary.Debora Diniz - 2008 - International Journal of Feminist Approaches to Bioethics 1 (2):23 - 35.
    In Brazil, social science research ethics is a field still under construction and subject to intense dispute. The aim of this paper is to discuss how accepted principles of biomedical research ethics can be incorporated into the ethical review of social sciences, particularly open interviews, ethnographic research, and participant observation. The paper uses a case study—the ethnographic documentary "Severina's Story"—as the basis for analysis of the methodological and ethical issues raised in social science (...)

    Research Methodology in Philosophy Within an Interdisciplinary and Commercialised African Context: Guarding Against Undue Influence From the Social Sciences.Rmj Oduor - 2010 - Thought and Practice: A Journal of the Philosophical Association of Kenya 2 (1):87-118.
    This paper argues that despite pressures to conform to the research methodology of the social sciences, African philosophers must diligently work for the preservation of the distinct character of philosophy as a discipline. To do this, they will have to move away from the debate on the existence and nature of African philosophy, and focus their efforts on the quest for a criterion by which to distinguish philosophical works from non-philosophical ones, regardless of where the works hail (...)

  8. The Future of Educational Research in the Context of the Social Sciences: A Special Case?Rosemary Deem - 1996 - British Journal of Educational Studies 44 (2):143-158.
    The paper examines the future prospects for educational research as conducted in UK universities and colleges of higher education in the light of current general changes in the organisation, funding and culture of higher education, and in respect of specific changes in the initial and in service training of teachers. It includes a critical examination of the claim made by some educational researchers that their research constitutes a special case, differentiated from other social science and humanities disciplines, (...)

    The Aesthetics of Research Methodologies in the Social Sciences.David E. W. Fenner - 2006 - International Journal of Applied Philosophy 20 (2):311-330.
    A strong parallel exists between current research methodologies in the social sciences and the two most central and popular approaches to aesthetics over the last four centuries. The point of this paper is to show this parallel, to demonstrate the importance and relevance of this parallel, and finally to examine ways of deciding, given this parallel between research methodologies and aesthetic approaches, which research methodology in a given context is the better.

    Contemporary Scientific and Technological Revolution and Modernization of Research in Social Sciences.Li Huiguo & Wu Yuanliang - 1985 - Contemporary Chinese Thought 16 (4):3-23.
    The scientific and technological revolution that started after the Second World War has entered a new stage since the 1970s. Under its impact, a new trend has emerged in the development of the social sciences. The research of China's social sciences is confronted with the urgent task of modernization of research problems, means of research, training of personnel, and organization and management. This article is an attempt to put forward some superficial views on (...)

    Ethical Decision Making and Research Deception in the Behavioral Sciences: An Application of Social Contract Theory.Allan J. Kimmel, N. Craig Smith & Jill Gabrielle Klein - 2011 - Ethics and Behavior 21 (3):222 - 251.
    Despite significant ethical advances in recent years, including professional developments in ethical review and codification, research deception continues to be a pervasive practice and contentious focus of debate in the behavioral sciences. Given the disciplines' generally stated ethical standards regarding the use of deceptive procedures, researchers have little practical guidance as to their ethical acceptability in specific research contexts. We use social contract theory to identify the conditions under which deception may or may not be morally (...)

    An historical review of authorship definitions and publication practices that are embedded in directions to authors and in the codes of ethics in the fields of psychology, sociology, and education illuminates reasonable agreement and consistency across the fields with regard to (a) originality of the work submitted, (b) data sharing, (c) human participants’ protection, and (d) conflict of interest disclosure. However, the role of the professional association in addressing violations of research or publication practices varies among these fields. Psychology (...)
